This Smartphone Add-on Identifies Cancer with 99 Percent Accuracy

00 Researchers have developed a smartphone add-on that allows doctors to detect interleukin 6 with 99 percent accuracy. [Image Courtesy of Washington State University] Interleukin 6 (IL-6) has been linked to prostate, liver, carcinoma, and lung cancers. The rig uses a smartphone, prism, and an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) plate. The backlit ELISA plate has 96 wells and can process up to eight samples at any given time. The technicians use a spectrometer app on the…

NASA Just Finished its Massive New Space Telescope

00 After countless delays and going billions of dollars over budget, the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is finally complete. The JWST debuted at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center on Thursday. The telescope’s primary mirror is currently the largest ever built. The 18 gold-plated hexagonal mirrors measure 21.3 feet across. When it launches in 2018, JWST will have 100 times more observing power of the Hubble telescope. The @NASAWebb’s primary mirror has a coating of…

You’re Not Smart. You’re Just Lucky: New Study Discovers the Role Luck Plays in Success

You’re Not Smart. You’re Just Lucky: New Study Discovers the Role Luck Plays in Success

00 The project initially started in 2013. Physicist Alber-Laszlo Barabasi at Northeastern University discovered they could predict the future citation rate of any given paper. They calculated the trajectory of its existing citations. Barabasi’s team then sought to predict the citation of every single paper a scientist ever published. In a sense, Barabasi’s team wanted to see into the future and attempt to forecast a scholar’s success. They collected data by combing through journals of…
